Dental Damn part deaux

Hey remember last year when I got the bad news of my mouth?  You guys. YOU GUYS.  I had no idea what I was in for. NONE.  I want to write this whole post in caps so you will understand how serious I am.  But I won't.

So in my last post about the dentist I was under the impression (punny) that I would be spending a good chunk of money ($2,800) to correct the damage that my little vitamin sucker did to my grill while I was growing her in my womb.  I had plans to have all of the things taken care of within a month of each other.  Then more life happened and of course, no one has any problem putting off a dentist appointment!  So I pushed it back and back and back until they called last week to tell me I had my cleaning.  And I told them we still need to fix this shit.  So they re-scheduled it.  For the 5th time.

After my cleaning I asked the girl if I had any new cavities.  She chuckled and said well I don't see any new ones per say, but unfortunately cavities don't get smaller... I started sweating thinking I was going to have to have a root canal (my ultimate fear).

Once the dentist finally came in to check out the damage he gave me the run down.  He told me I needed more crowns and I am "lucky" I don't need a root canal.  I told him to get a move on and lets do this shit.  Quickly, while I am still calm.  Before starting, front desk girl brought me a paper to sign, showing me the total of my tooth bill.  I shit my pants.  Right there in the dentist chair.  Right when I got handed a bill for $5,600.  FIVE THOUSAND AND SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS.  Guys, the $2,800 from last year was a quote for all of my teeth.  The left side of my mouth was supposed to cost $1,100.  I just cost myself fourty five HUNDRED dollars by putting my appointment off.

So I didn't really shit my pants.  I just cried a little then paid cause hello?  It's not like I can leave after the whole "cavities only get bigger" spill.  Then what?  Then I come back in a year and you all of the sudden have to pull all of my teeth then I suck and can't even eat food because I put it off again?  Ugh..

I was in that chair for 4 hours.  4 hours.  4 crowns and 3 fillings later.  I finally got to leave.

Here I am, 3 days later, a hell of a lot broke-r, and with a mouth half full of fake teeth.  My mouth is jacked. It hurts so bad.  Still.  9 shots of Novocaine will do that to ya.  9.  Yeah that was fun. Not.  Here is a little collage for your viewing pleasure.  Apparently I love me some instagram when high on NO2...

Moral here?  Don't miss your dentist appointment.  And have really good dental insurance...mine only covered $159.00. LAME.


  1. Maybe you should opt for better dental insurance? Just kidding, mine only pays for two cleanings per year, PERIOD! I love you and am sorry you have gone through this but keep thinking back to all those appointments you didn't show up for in college!!!

  2. We are in the same boat. Totally sucks. I still have work to be done... no telling what this baby has doen to me my mouth
